Let’s dream together today of a better, healthy and peaceful world.

Every year, the International Day of Peace is celebrated around the world on September 21. The United Nations General Assembly declared it a day dedicated to strengthening the ideals of peace, observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire. Let us come together under the theme: Shaping Peace Together.

This year, we all have a common enemy: the tireless Covid-19 virus which threatens our health, our safety, and our way of life. COVID-19 reminded us that we are all equal as human beings in the face of a pandemic, but also that by putting our efforts together and by respecting common basic rules of life, all together we will overcome this ordeal.

Solidarity and cooperation are essential in the various human struggles whether against Covid-19 or violence in general. Today we are building a new world, and all want it to be peaceful and prosperous

In these difficult times of physical distancing, this International Day of Peace will be devoted to fostering dialogue and collecting ideas. Share your thoughts on how to weather this storm, heal our planet, and change it for the better. Let us dream together today of a better, healthy, and peaceful world.

Let's celebrate this day by spreading compassion, kindness and hope.
